Final Fall Field Trip!

Migrant Fall Songbirds
Pheasant Branch Conservancy
Saturday, October 29th @ 7:30am

We'll scour the prairie parcel of Pheasant Branch Conservancy for sparrows during my final Madison Audubon field trip of 2011. Expect American Tree, White-throated, White-crowned, Fox, and a few others. A Northern Shrike has been in the area the past few days, so hopefully it will make an appearance during our outing. We will look (and listen) for other late fall birds like Lapland Longspur, American Pipit, Hermit Thrush, and migrating raptors. Meet at 7:30am at the Dane County Unit of Pheasant Branch Conservancy, about 1.5 miles north of Century Avenue (Middleton) on Pheasant Branch Road. This the third parking lot on your right for the conservancy as you're heading north out of Middleton, or see the yellow locator pin on this google map!
